Montessori Book Club: Summer Adventure Books

We are fortunate to live in a beautiful and wild part of the world. One of our absolute favourite things to do is to throw some snacks and art supplies and books in a pack and head out exploring some of these wild spaces.

We’ve been crushing on “The Lost Book of Adventure” for awhile, and so when Quatrokids contacted us on Instagram and offered to send us a copy we were absolutely thrilled!

It’s illustrations are beautiful and the call to adventure at the beginning of the book is just what a certain newly minted 7 year old boy needed to become immediately drawn in.

We love that the book is broken into different sections of adventure with lots of antidotes, and information to spark a child’s imagination to try it themselves.

Quentin had so many questions but ultimately this book has led to big adventure planning.

It has also brought back some very fond memories of our own adventures to the coasts, beautiful forests in our area and other places we have travelled.

This is a long weekend in Canada. It is officially the start of Canada’s camping season.

What better way for us to kick off this upcoming amazing summer of adventure (for us both here at home and very far away stay tuned) then to sit up in bed with the flashlight and this book planning.

This would make an excellent addition to any adventurous child’s bookshelf and is ideally suited towards children ages 6+. It can be found for purchase here!

Sunday Book Club: Nature Journalling


We love being submersed in nature. There are so many beautiful experiences to offer to a child, by simply being out in nature. 

Collecting treasures from our trips as well as memories came naturally and with that came the need for a place to store everything. 


Nature journalling can be as simple or elaborate as you’d like. We chose the simpler side and I enlisted some help. 



This book came highly recommended and I’m so glad we got it. It is gorgeous, takes us through every stage and sets the bar high for our future journalling to strive to. 
The pages are beautiful enough for both Quentin and I to just flip through and discuss. From flowers to animals to landscapes we have poured over its pages. 

My hope is that Quentin may decide to use this independently as he gets older and it will certainly hold out for him if he does.
